A Complete Lesson in whitework

Hello Everyone

Hope you have had a good week and enjoying the weekend?  This week I am pleased to announce that the new Complete Lesson In Whitework is available in the Etsy store for sale here.

Traditionally whitework was done with white thread on a white ground fabric but as you know I have added touches of colour and called it Shades Of Whitework to distinguish from pure whitework embroidery.  It is simple to do and VERY addictive.

This project will teach you all you need to know and I have revamped the tutorials for each stitch to include text explanation, a diagram and a “Looks Like This” picture, to guide you easily through the process.

This is one of the Complete Lesson series – Needlepainting, Miniature Needlepainting and Whitework.  The kits enable you to learn the technique from the comfort of your own home in your own time without attending a workshop.  Once you have grasped the basics you will be able to progress onto any of the beginner or intermediate kits available in the store.

Next week I am heading off to Johannesburg in South Africa to run a two day workshop so the shop will be closed for a few days from 12th – 15th October.  Meantime, wherever you are keep smiling, happy stitching and remember “Embroidery Forever, Housework Whenever”!
